In modern New York, an old lady called Angela beats off a mugger and tells him of a time when the gold coins she has hoarded were used to buy revolutionary bullets for Balkan heroes. In Arizona, 1900, two brothers (Luke and Elijah), tussle over the same girl (Lileth). She is the beauty in the local bordello, a diva with stars in her eyes and gold in her heart. Macedonia, 1912. Mercenary commandos and nationalist rebels fight for this corner of the dying Ottoman empire. This is the Wild East, where the old century is bleeding into the new, and it's a dirty, dirty war.
